#155 Intellego Kolbroek Syrah 2018
Intellego: New vintage old philosophy
💎 Another gem from #legit natural winemaker Jurgen Gouws. This bottle is a tough sell if you’re one to judge a book by its cover. But mercifully, if you can look past its first appearance, it delivers on the personality front in spades.
👹 But when I say personality, I don’t mean “sweet, smily and precious”. Rather the Kolbroek is a brooding powerful savoury beast, expressed with the utmost clarity.
🔬 Fruit is from 21-yr-old vines, planted in oakleaf and shale soils in the Swartland. The grapes are fermented using only native yeasts and are matured in old oak for ten months. The wine was whole-bunch fermented over roughly ten days, under semi-carbonic and oxidative conditions.
